MCAA Midyear Report
2009 MCAA Midyear Meeting
The 2009 MCAA Midyear Meeting was held in September in San Diego at the Manchester Grand Hyatt. The meeting was a great success as the program presented excellent educational programs. In addition to the excellent educational programs, attendees had a great time with numerous networking functions and participated in an MCAA Board Meeting and three committee meetings. The event was capped off with a wonderful evening of baseball at PETCO Park as the San Diego Padres took on the Arizona Diamondbacks in the historical Western Metal Building. That evening began with an excellent show of the Navy Seals skydiving team (see photos) and saw the Padres losing the game 3-1 in the ninth inning.
Members of the MCAA can go to the MCAA Web site (www.masoncontractors.org) to view, free of charge, two of the four educational sessions presented in San Diego. The two programs are Family Succession Planning, and Immigration and E-Verify. The MCAA would like to send a very large thank you to the sponsors of our event who helped make the event a huge success:
The MCAA would also like to thank the California Conference of Mason Contractors for holding their meeting jointly with the MCAA and for hosting an absolutely excellent round of golf at The Grand Del Mar Golf Club. The next MCAA event will be our Convention, which will be held in conjunction with World of Masonry in Las Vegas, Feb. 1- 5, 2010. The MCAA’s host hotel will be the Venetian Hotel. Make plans to attend today!
